Tim Kaine's Bold New Ideas

You make sense of this.  I can't.

From a Roanoke Times "Blue Ridge Caucus" blog post we learn that senatorial candidate - and Democrat - Tim Kaine is coming came to the area.

He came to "share his ideas."

Why?

I’m really sharing my thoughts on what I call the talent economy. One of the great Virginia lessons over the last generation is that if you get the talent piece right, then other things economically go the right direction. And we’re losing the talent war at the national level and have to commit to winning again, and I’m sharing my thoughts about how to do that and picking up ideas and thoughts from business leaders as I go.”

America has "talent" issues.

Really?

Most experts would tell you we are getting our asses handed to us because the USA is no longer competitive, is smothered by government regulation, and has a tax structure that only a Richard I could love.

"We're losing the talent war"?  Allow America to once again prosper, by getting government off our backs and out of our pockets , fool, and "the talent war" will win itself.


Dan Casey, Typical Liberal

Only a leftie could walk into a room full of strangers and have his first reaction to the crowd before him center on ...

... race.

Welcome to the twisted world of Dan Casey, Roanoke Times columnist.

Quote of the Day

George Will on why liberals hate the rich, and on how the government is there to stoke that hatred:

"People are less dissatisfied by what they lack than by what others have. And when government engages in redistribution in order to maximize the happiness of citizens who become more envious as they become more comfortable, government becomes increasingly frenzied and futile."

"Government: The redistributionist behemoth," Washington Post, January 6, 2012

On Those Poor Misunderstood Muslims

"Allahu akbar!  Allahu akbar!"

That was the chant as gunmen stormed into a beauty salon and murdered - indiscriminately - human beings that may or may not have been believers in their god.

Their faith?

We're not allowed to talk about it.  Their sensibilities might be abused.

Stuck On Stupid

It's over, dude.  Give it up.

This is almost painful:

Frustrated New York Times columnist: Still Searching for Republicans With Climate Concerns

How lonely that quest must be. While the rest of the planet has evaluated the data and come to the conclusion that "climate "change"/"global warming" was nothing more than hysterical fiction based on intentionally manipulated "studies" by unscrupulous "scientists," this poor soul still waits at the door for someone to come along and tell him that he wasn't played for the fool.

Sorry. It ain't gonna happen. You're the fool for which you were played. Deal with it. Get a life.

Union Organizers Are Not All That Bright

From the Washington Examiner's "Dim Bulb" segment this morning:
SEIU organizers Todd Stoner and Clarence Haynes

Who: SEIU organizers Todd Stoner and Clarence Haynes

What: The two men -- from New Jersey and Florida, respectively -- allegedly registered to vote in Wisconsin using their hotel address and then voted in the state's closely watched April 5 Supreme Court election.

Why it's dim: The Milwaukee District Attorney's Office has issued a search warrant [sic] for the two union activists and one other man.

Cure: According to Wisconsin law, the cure is $10,000 each and up to 42 months in prison, provided the allegations are true. [link]
Who knows, maybe they figured there was no way they'd be punished by a sympathetic government.

They Dwell on that Which Matters To No One

Newt Gingrich is right.  Again.  While the mainstream press (and Hollywood) continue to focus on the plight of homosexuals in this country, both choose to ignore the real damage that is being done in consequence to laws passed to make homosexuals feel better about themselves.

Newt:




Not that Dianne Sawyer or her ilk heard a word of it.

The Federal Debt Debate In Microcosm

This is amusing.  And yet it's not:





When they get back to Washington, the first order of business is to raise the debt limit again.

On and on it goes.
